While I am a Registered Nurse, and I share nursing and medical knowledge, stories, thoughts and opinions, I am not your Registered Nurse and nothing in this blog should be construed as a substitute for seeking medical attention or medical advice from your Primary Healthcare Practitioner.  If you are experiencing an emergency seek emergency medical attention.

Things found on this website are not based on one person, but instead a wide range of patient encounters and scenarios; stories on this blog concerning patients are HIPAA compliant. Stories have been changed dramatically to remove patient identifiers including name, sex, geographical locations, date, and time. Any similarities to real patients, living or deceased, is purely a coincidence.

Any opinions expressed are solely my own and do not reflect the beliefs or opinions of any of my employers, past or present.
